Façade installation is underway on 979 Pacific Street, an eight-story mixed-use building in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by EMP Capital Group, the 65,160-square-foot structure will yield 69 rental units spread over 48,551 square feet and 7,406 square feet of retail space. Countywide Builders is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the intersection Pacific Street and Grand Avenue.
Recent photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure topped out and covered in scaffolding and netting, with the window grid largely in place. The walls are covered in a white waterproof membrane and brickwork should begin shortly. The blank eastern wall is already finished with rectangular panels that will match the dark exterior color scheme of the top four floors.
The rendering in the main photo shows 979 Pacific Street featuring a brick-clad lower section with an industrial-inspired design featuring large warehouse-style windows. Above the fifth floor, the massing sets back before rising with a more contemporary dark-paneled design on the final three stories. The building features outdoor terraces with glass railings between the two sections and on the roof level.
Amenities will include bicycle parking for 35 bikes, a 38-foot-long rear yard, and recreation space. The lot is three blocks from the Franklin Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains.
979 Pacific Street’s completion date is set for December 2023.
